Thank you for visiting our website. We invite you to browse, and submit a question or comment if you wish.            

The "Thoughtful Guidance"  difference: we are a full service funeral home.  We are prepared to assist families with many types of arrangements including cremation, casket burial, natural burial, funerals, memorials and life celbrations. 

No matter the level of service we will help obtain certified copies and submit newspaper notices. The cost of these non-funeral home costs are not marked up.  All families may choose to have an online memorial page that remains active in our archives and may be linked to your social media accounts at no additional cost.  We are on call 24/7 and have years of experience and knowledge to help your family.  You aren't expected to go it alone.

Important to know:  When a death occurs please call the funeral home at 978-263-5333; please do not rely on email or texts to contact us for the first notification call as the situation is too important and urgent to rely on electronic transmissions. The funeral home phone line is answered 24/7 by our funeral directors or an answering service rep.  Pre-Need pages: If you take the time to complete a pre-need information record, we also ask that you also please call the funeral home at 978-263-5333 to confirm receipt.

COVID UPDATE:  We respecfully remind you that wearing a mask and social distancing at services are mandatory.  In addition, those who feel ill, think they may have been exposed to COVID-19, and those who are in quarantine should not attend services. 

The US Military Honors teams are back in service.  The team will render "Taps," fold and present the flag to the family keeping social distance. The main difference is flag will then be placed on the casket or on table or stand next to the urn, rather than handed directly to a family member.

Most funeral homes, churches and venues are open but capacity will be limited.  Most of the area cemeteries are continuing with the 10 person limit at graveside.

Please call the funeral home for details when planning services. We'll be happy to go into more detail based on your wishes.

Thank you so much for your cooperation as we continue through these challenging times.


Kathy, Tom, Tim & Henry


Looking for a memorial page or to post an online condolence message? Listings are on the right  of this page. For current services use the arrows at the bottom of the list to see additional pages.   For a past service click on "Past Services." Type the name in the search bar to find the record.  All our memorial pages complete with obituaries, tributes and photos are archived at no cost to families.                                                                                                                     

VERY IMPORTANT: A Word about Flowers:  In Massachusetts regulations prohibit funeral homes to sell flowers or receive compensation for floral purchases. We do not offer that service from our web site.  Many of the newspaper and online obituary sites connect to us when we submit the notice and/or post a memorial page. They may offer floral sales on their pages, and often people mistakenly believe we endorse their products.  However to ensure quality work, prompt service and timely delivery, we encourage people to order flowers directly from local brick and mortar florist shops. You may call the funeral home at 978-263-5333 and we can provide the name and number of the florist that the family has chosen.




Prearrangement is a gift to your family, sparing them from hard decisions at an emotional time. Learn more aboue this practical & loving gesture.
